Joyous, daring and virtuosic music from two of the late Baroque’s most innovative composers. In this feast of vivacious solos and orchestral suites, Spiritato brings together an entire orchestra of dynamic soloists. Opening with a dazzling concerto for multiple soloists by Bach’s lesser-known contemporary Johann Friedrich Fasch, director/violinist Kinga Ujszászi next takes the lead for two of Johann Sebastian’s most fiendish solo works. Fasch’s elegant Quartetto provides a moment of delightful contrast before the trumpets and drums return in one of the most popular of all Baroque works, bringing this thrilling programme to a glorious conclusion.
